Anyone uses Firestone Destination AT?

Totally impressed with what I saw a set do yesterday in heavy clay mud. 285/75R16 on an 06. He pulled an overloaded dump trailer through my neighbors yard and backed it into place to dump with it two different times. At least 11k lbs total for this 10k trailer. Tires were mashed. Trailer was rutting yard up but he was not spinning at all. I don't think I could have followed him around empty with new T/As since they slick over so easy.

This is one of the tires I like that is made as a 16 incher.
I could not find many reviews out there with these tires on a 2500 size truck. Dude liked the wear that he was getting out of them.

I'm not trying the T/A's again. I think the Nitto's Terras are out due to short life.
Don't want to buy a 25k mile set again.

Let me know what you have heard, drove or seen happen to the Destination ATs concerning life, ride, quietness and light mud-ability. I am not going cheap, I am trying to buy a good set of tires that will hold up to towing around town and not get stuck.

Thanks guys!

We use those tires for our fleet of F series trucks. They all seem to get great mileage even on our trucks that seem to be right at the brink of overloaded. They take those trucks down easements and we haven't heard any complaints about road noise or ability to get places.

Yes, have 295/65R20 on my 2016 2500. I have ran the Destination AT & MT on all my trucks for many years now. Great tires and I can always get them at good prices.. never had an issue and they last.

I bought the Firestones.

Seemed to do well pulling loaded with 6000 lb rear axle weight caused by trailer with tractor on it. Trailer weight was 9800 on scales with 4460 on front axle. It was floaty as hell driving empty with 80 psi. I am running 55 front, 60 rear now empty. 65 front/70 rear when loaded now. I may bump that up when it gets hotter.

No off road test yet. Neighbor would not let drive through his yard after it rained.

Firestone Destination AT's have been a good tire for me. A good combination for plowing snow and pulling trailers, it's hard to find a good combination. It's a fairly quiet tire, compared to some I've had on my truck. I have 30000 on these, probably more than half worn. Hopefully I'll get maybe 45000 out of them. Fronts wear quicker, so I rotate every 10000 or so. But, I have a 900 pound plow on the front 6 months out of the year. I'm satisfied with them.

There are some good tires out there, sort of depends what you are doing with the truck. There is no miracle tire that I've found.

I've had them in 275/65/20 for over 2 years now, about 35k miles on them, should get another 15k. no complaints at all, traction, ride, wear are pretty good, i'm satisfied i just wished they offered more sizes!

I love the Destination A/Ts. Ran them for several years, have Cooper Discoverers on the truck right now. By the end of the year, think I'm going to switch back to the Destinations.

I had them on my 2015 Ram 2500 I had before I bought my 2013 LML 3500. I thought they wore out extremely fast. I sold the truck with 23,000 highway miles and thought they had no more than 10,000 miles left on them. I had brand new Toyo AT2's put on my Silverado when I bought it. I've already put 18,000 miles on it and the tires are wearing very well.
